French Lick Scenic Railway
The Indiana Railway Museum currently operates as The French Lick Scenic Railway operating passenger trains over twenty-five miles of this track from French Lick to Jasper. The driving force behind the Railway is to provide guests with an experience harking back to a time when rail travel was the primary means of long distance travel. You won’t find a Museum in the traditional sense. There are no display cases full of dusty timetables and lanterns, but what you will find is the opportunity to experience history. Instead of just looking at them, you will be able to climb aboard the train and experience rail travel first hand!
